        From My Husband, Paul Harty (Bardolph HS, IL - '61) of NC - 02/14/14 - "WOW":
 

THE YEAR IS 1910
This will boggle your mind, I know it did mine! 
************ ********* ***********
The year is 1910 
One hundred and four years ago. 
What a difference a century makes! 
Here are some statistics for the Year 1910:
************ ********* ************ 
The average life expectancy for men was 47 years.
Fuel for a car was sold in drug stores only. 
Only 14 percent of the homes had a bathtub.
Only 8 percent of the homes had a telephone.
There were only 8,000 cars and only 144 miles of paved roads.
The maximum speed limit in most cities was 10 mph.
The tallest structure in the world was the Eiffel Tower !
The average US wage in 1910 was 22 cents per hour.
The average US worker made between $200 and $400 per year.
A competent accountant could expect to earn $2000 per year, 
A dentist $2,500 per year, a veterinarian between $1,500 and $4,000 per year,
 and a mechanical engineer about $5,000 per year.
More than 95 percent of all births took place at HOME.
Ninety percent of all Doctors had NO COLLEGE EDUCATION!
Instead, they attended so-called medical schools, many of which
Were condemned in the press AND the government as 'substandard.'
Sugar cost four cents a pound.
Eggs were fourteen cents a dozen.
Coffee was fifteen cents a pound.
Most women only washed their hair once a month, and used Borax or egg yolks for shampoo.
Canada passed a law that prohibited poor people from entering into their country for any reason.
The Five leading causes of death were:
1. Pneumonia and influenza 
2. Tuberculosis 
3. Diarrhea 
4. Heart disease 
5. Stroke
The American flag had 45 stars.
The population of Las Vegas , Nevada , was only 30!
Crossword puzzles, canned beer, and iced tea hadn't been invented yet.
There was no Mother's Day or Father's Day.
Two out of every 10 adults couldn't read or write and 
Only 6 percent of all Americans had graduated from high school.
Marijuana, heroin, and morphine were all available over the counter at the local corner drugstores.
Back then pharmacists said, 'Heroin clears the complexion, gives buoyancy to the mind,
Regulates the stomach and bowels, and is, in fact, a perfect guardian of health'
( Shocking? DUH! )
Eighteen percent of households had at least one full-time servant or domestic help.
There were about 230 reported murders in the ENTIRE U.S.A. ! 

   

I am now going to forward this to someone else without typing it myself.
From there, it will be sent to others all over the WORLD - all in a matter of seconds!
Try to imagine what it may be like in another 100 years. 
IT STAGGERS THE MIND

   WOWZERONI! It does indeed! Thanks, Haul Party!


        From My Husband, Paul Harty (Bardolph HS, IL - '61) of NC - 02/01/14 - "Dogs (#14 in a Series of 26)":
 

 

Happy New Year to dog lovers everywhere!

     HA-HA-HA! Thanks, Dools!

 
 


    From Jimmy Smith ('62 / '63) of VA - 02/06/14 - "OLD CANS .... (#5 in a Series of 15)":

  OLD CANS!

He used to go to all the public functions...especially the picture theaters. And he always carried a sugar bag to collect empty bottles and cans. His name was... Albert (Tapper) Torney.

Everyone thought he was a bit eccentric and kids would tease and hassle him. Then it was discovered that he sold the empty bottles but only some of the cans.

After he died in 1998 (aged 86) his large collection of model cars made from aluminum cans was discovered.

This goes to prove..."you shouldn't judge a book by its cover" - or a sculptor by his sugar bag. Some of his collection ---- AMAZING!


   WOWZERS! Thanks, Jimmy!
 
 


    From Joan Lauterbach Krause ('60) of VA - 02/10/14 - "Maxine on cold weather (#5 in a Series of 12)":

 
In light of more snow.  Thought you might enjoy these.  :) :)

   WILD GIGGLES! Thanks, Joan!

FINALLY:

From www.ajokeaday.com - 02/14/14:

A guy walked into a bar and ordered a shot of whisky. He gulped it down and peeked into his shirt pocket. He ordered another shot of whisky, gulped it down, and peeked into his shirt pocket. He ordered a third shot and did the same thing. After the sixth shot, he asked the bartender for the bill, paid it, and started to walk out.

Curiosity got the better of the bartender and he said to the guy, "Excuse me, but I noticed that every time you drank a shot, you kept looking into your pocket. I was wondering what's in your pocket."

The guy slurred, "Well, I have a picture of my wife in my pocket. I keep drinking until she starts to look good."

Let Me Call You Sweetheart

Music by Leo Friedman (16 July 1869 - 07 Mar 1927

Words by Beth Slater Whitson (01 Dec 1879 26 Apr 1930), 1910
 

 Let me call you Sweetheart
I'm in love with you.
Let me hear you whisper that you love me too.
Keep the lovelight glowing in your eyes so true
Let me call you Sweetheart
I'm in love with you!

I am dreaming, dear, of you
Day by day
Dreaming when the skies are blue,
When they're gray;
When the silv'ry moonlight gleams,
Still I wander on in dreams
In a land of love, it seems
Just with you....

Let me call you Sweetheart
I'm in love with you.
Let me hear you whisper that you love me too.
Keep the lovelight glowing in your eyes so true
Let me call you Sweetheart
I'm in love with you!
